The Coordinating Committee has met once a month in February, March and April of 2010, with an extra meeting in April to reconsider the in-person meeting schedule. The members of the committee are George Reiter, Efia Nwangaza, Joe Wanzala, Richard Uzzell, Ricco Ross, Nia Bediako, Alonzo Brown, LaVarn Williams, Arlene Engelhardt and Tracy Rosenberg. The chair is Tracy Rosenberg and the secretary is "floating".

We defined our mission as follows: The Coordinating Committee will coordinate the agenda and review the logistical arrangements for the PNB in-person meetings, address issues with the telephone meetings as they arise, and accept any assignments from the entire board for additional tasks.

So far we have done some off-line assistance with jumpstarting the search process for the LA meeting site and are getting some preliminary quotes together for the July Berkeley meeting, set dates for the PNB in-person meetings through January 2011, and entertained, discussed and revised some scheduling issues for the LA meeting.

The committee has only partially been involved in the detailed agenda-setting and some clarification of the respective roles of the officers (Chair, Vice-Chair and Secretary), the Coordinating Committee and the full PNB would be helpful prior to starting the process forthe Berkeley meeting in July.

Respectfully submitted,

Tracy Rosenberg

Chair, PNB Coordinating Committee
